Enso

The Japanese Zen Circle

Enso Japanese Symbol Wall Scroll close up view

Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

This is Enso, which is really NOT a regular Japanese Kanji character. It falls more into the category of a symbol. In this case, it can be considered a religious symbol, as it is strongly associated with Japanese Zen Buddhism.

Some call this "The Circle of Enlightenment". Others call it the "Infinity Circle". If you actually took the meanings of the two Kanji that make up the word "Enso", you could read it as "Mutual Circle" or "Circle of Togetherness". I think the Enso symbol can simply mean different things to different people. Therefore, you should let it have the meaning that you perceive.


See our Enso Symbol Custom Japanese Wall Scrolls page for more custom options.

If you bought this wall scroll in Japan, it would cost around $200. Because this was made by hand at the calligrapher's studio and my workshop in Beijing, and my very low-profit margin, this costs you just a fraction of the Japanese price.


About the artist:

This calligraphy was created by Li Dan-Qing of Beijing. He's an older gentleman who has been involved with the art community of China, all of his life. Now in retirement, he creates calligraphy for us for sort of "hobby income".


About the materials and construction of this wall scroll:

The calligraphy was done using black Chinese ink on xuan paper (known incorrectly in the west as "rice paper"). The raw artwork was then taken to our Wall Scroll Workshop where it was laminated to more sheets of xuan paper, and built into a beautiful silk brocade wall scroll. Except for the use of a lathe to turn the wooden knobs, this wall scroll is virutally 100% handmade from start to finish (even the paper is made by hand).
